Andrew Luck QB IND Nov 01 '789 Comments

New Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton says he'll run more of a West Coast offense than Bruce Arians did in Indianapolis.

Under Arians, the Colts relied on a heavy passing game that sought to pick up yards in chunks. In turn, Andrew Luck averaged a healthy 12.9 yards-per-attempt. Luck is very unlikely to approach that number again. "The short, efficient passing game, a high completion rate. I'm a big believer of the power-running game and I think that ultimately opens up your passing game, the play-action passes," said Hamilton. The Colts were in the middle of the pack when it came to play-action in 2012, but that figures to rise under Hamilton. We might be a bit wary of expecting Luck to top 4,300 yards passing again.

McCarthy runs a WC system in GB.

Don't worry about Luck.

no worries about Luck in a true west coast offense but the colts have a power RB? with all that passing going on, i missed it.

Ballard is going to better than people think, if that O-Line ever gives him a hole.

Time will tell, I guess.

the best RB's just need a little crack to exploit. is he that rookie that took over early due to injuries?

Ballard was the rookie out of MS State who Wally Pipp'ed Donald Brown.

He'll be the starter there next year. I fully expect the Colts to upgrade the OL and WR positions through the draft and FA. Ballard will be at least a RB3 next year.
